Disney Updates Fort Wilderness RV and Golf Cart Policies

Disney Updates Fort Wilderness RV and Golf Cart Policies

To the chagrin of many Fort Wilderness fans, Disney has updated the resort’s RV and golf cart policies. Beginning June 1, 2024, guests may no longer use golf carts rented through a third party. They may use their own carts, but only if they can provide proof of insurance. As always, guests can rent golf carts directly from Disney. Finally, RV rentals are now limited to a select list of providers.

While Disney isn’t saying so, DVC’s Fort Wilderness Cabins might be playing a role in these changes. Over 360 of the cabins are slated to open in the next year, bringing with them a different type of Fort Wilderness guest. There are always safety and liability issues that arise with third-party rentals, as well. Interestingly, Disney hasn’t partnered with any outside golf cart providers as it has for RV rentals.

Here are the complete details:

Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground provides a unique vacation destination where many guests enjoy visiting with an RV or easily traveling around the resort on a golf cart.

Recently, we’ve made some adjustments to our policies for RVs and golf carts and want to make sure you are aware.

What you need to know: RVs

Renting an RV?

We have several Disney Featured Providers guests can use to rent an RV at Fort Wilderness. When guests choose to rent through one of these providers, the guest does not need to be present when the equipment is delivered to the resort. The provider will work with Disney Resort Cast Members to manage deliveries, set-up, and returns of rented RVs.

Featured Providers

Bringing an RV?

RVs are welcome and must be brought in by registered guests.

What you need to know: golf carts

Renting a golf cart?

Golf carts can be easily rented right from Fort Wilderness. Guests can make reservations in advance by calling 407-824-2724, based on availability. After arriving, guests can visit the Outpost to pick up the golf cart right at the resort.

Bringing your own golf cart?

Golf carts are welcome, but for the safety of everyone at the resort, beginning June 1, 2024, must also be prepared to present proof of insurance and sign an agreement and waiver. Third-party companies may not conduct business on Walt Disney World property.

As a reminder, our Walt Disney World Resort property rules prohibit unauthorized commercial activity at Walt Disney World. This includes unauthorized rentals brought onto our property by non-resort guests, such as RVs and golf carts.

Disney allows guests to rent golf carts up to a year in advance. I’d take full advantage of that policy in light of the new rules. Unless Disney has increased their inventory, some guests will be disappointed when they have to rely on internal buses, bikes, or their own two feet to navigate that sprawling resort.
